India's cotton inventory may rise as exports decline
Jan '13
India’s cotton inventory at the end of the current cotton season in September 2013 is likely to increase compared to the carryover stocks at the end of last season, mainly due to a projected decline in exports.
India’s Cotton Advisory Board (CAB) expects cotton exports to decline to seven million bales of 170 kg each during the ongoing season. According to CAB, last season, India exported 12.7 million bales of cotton, most of them to China.
Accordingly, the board expects India’s cotton inventory at the end of the current season to grow to 7.7 million bales against the carryover stocks of 5.32 million bales at the beginning of the current season.
The recently-released report by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates India’s cotton output during the current season at 32.5 million bales, while it pegs domestic consumption at 26.4 million bales.
According to the report, India’s cotton exports are likely to dip by around 60 percent year-on-year to 5.7 million bales. India exported a record 14.7 million bales of cotton in the last marketing year, as per USDA estimates.
